Is it possible to export first and last names separately in Goldmine 6.7?

I would like to export some contact names from Goldmine into Excel but I need to have the first and last name separated. Goldmine puts them together as "Contact Name". There is a last name export option but I cant find a first name option.  Please help!

Thank you!

In the Export Wizard, choose the contact field and the last name field. Then, highlight the contact entry on the right, and click Edit Expr. Change the expression as you see it to:

word(contact,1)

and this will give you the first name.

By the way, I should point out that the answer I'm giving does not entail use of the Excel/GoldMine integration module... we're merely exporting from GoldMine using Tools | Export, and then importing into Excel afterward.
